Lucky you, another MT7630e victim. ( personal opinion )
ASUS TP500L here

This fixed part of my problem, new kernels no longer kill the driver:

JeremyB fixed the WiFi adapter problem, whereby a new kernel deletes the WiFi configuration.

Code: Select all

sudo dkms uninstall mt7630e/2.1.0
sudo dkms remove mt7630e/2.1.0 --all
sudo rm -r /usr/src/mt7630e-2.1.0/
git clone https://github.com/jeremyb31/mt7630e_test.git
sudo dkms add mt7630e_test
sudo dkms install mt7630e/2.2.1
and here:

You could make sure Network Manager isn't turning on wifi power management with


sudo sed -i 's/wifi.powersave = 3/wifi.powersave = 2/' /etc/NetworkManager/conf.d/default-wifi-powersave-on.conf && systemctl restart network-manager.service


sudo sed -i 's/wifi.powersave = 3/wifi.powersave = 2/' /etc/NetworkManager/conf.d/default-wifi-powersave-on.conf


give those a try, and hopefully your problem will be gone.
